Postcards is a dream pop trio formed in 2012 in Beirut, Lebanon. Their music is defined by hushed vocals floating over expansive soundscapes that shift between harsh noise and dreamy atmospheres.
They have released three EPs and two albums and have been regularly touring Europe and the Middle East since 2014. Their third full-length album, After the Fire, Before the End came out on October 15, 2021. Written between January 2020 and January 2021, the album is a record of the devastating year that the country witnessed, through the eyes of the band; the slow demise of an uprising, the economic collapse, a crushing pandemic, and the explosion.
“But aside from the haunting energy of the charming lead vocalist’s angelic voice, the instrumental parts are impressively creative, expressive and varied with a magnetic pull, giving two-minute gems and epics lasting five minutes or more their breathtakingly colourful diversity which will surprise you even after several spins” – Rough Trade
“Postcards turn in yet another powerful and defiant release.” – Arab News
“…a solid set of shoegazerish dream-pop, combining fuzzy, occasionally squalling guitars with ethereal vocals and dreamy melodies” – KEXP (US)
